SWES Textile Drive


The elementary school will be partnering with the 4H club K9 Korp to do a textile drive the last few weeks of school. As a partner, some of the funds will be given to the elementary school for supplies while the rest of the funds will be used for 4H education opportunities and other 4H related expenses.

We will have two large bins outside the front entrance for you to place your items into. This is the time to get rid of clothes, blankets, curtains, sheets, and shoes. that are too worn to be of any use, but you can’t just bring yourself to throw away. Unusable items will be recycled and any usable items will be given to a local thrift shop.

Thank you for supporting your school and local 4H. Any questions please email me at jcravy@sw.wednet.edu
